    What color morph is this?

    Hello all the fellow shrimp heads! I’ve finally begun the journey into shrimp keeping and decided to start with golden back yellows.

    I got one male from a different source, however, and he looks different from the others. Still yellow, but a shade darker. *Almost* orange but not quite, still yellow.

    My biggest concern is, if left with the brighter/lighter yellows, will he cause them to start throwing wild morph babies? Should he be separated?

    Here’s the shrimp in question.


    For contrast, here are the yellow shrimp I hope to breed as my chosen “line.” The females are massive, almost as big as amanos!

    Good, good! So long as I can keep him with the others without sullying the mutation, all is well.

    These are commonly known as Golden Backs.
